Welcome to GLEI.

Welcome to the Global Legal Education Institute. 

We are the premiere on-site and online provider of U.S.-based professional development training and consulting for foreign legal and business practitioners. Our intensive seminars, taught by licensed U.S. law and business practitioners, offer substantive, practical skills training to help foreign practitioners prepare to work in a U.S. professional environment by taking on clients or working with firms that do business in or with clients in the United States. 

Our Approach

GLEI works with individuals, firms, government agencies, and international organizations to help them develop the tools they need to bridge the gap between their existing skill set and the skills needed to effectively work with U.S. firms, businesses, and agencies. We offer intensive seminars, taught by U.S.-based practitioners, that immediately engage participants with hands-on skills training in areas such as commercial law, contracts, legal writing, and legal English. We also offer consulting services focused on one-on-one development of legal writing skills, translation of legal documents, and proofreading to ensure that your clients and partners receive clean and professional documents.

Working with you.

Short courses to meet your needs.

GLEI courses are designed with busy legal practitioners in mind. Schedules are established to cause minimal disruption to your daily routine, while providing maximum learning opportunity.

Our Method.

Real practitioners. Real lessons.

Instructors for GLEI are U.S.-trained, U.S.-licensed practitioners with expertise in the subject matter they are teaching. This ensures that you receive the most current and useful tips for successful practice in your chosen area of law.
